Conversation Between Tony Zona and Jim Matthews

  1. I've got a "starter" plane with a Hock iron and cap iron at your disposal, if you change your mind.

    Plenty of decent hunnert dolla examples on eBay if you're shopping. The main thing to determine is the usable length of the blade.

    It should be longer than it is wide.

    Avoid split or cracked Dai (the wooden body).

    Browse Brian Holcombe's excellent blog for setup guidance. He managed to get what little I know across, when I was baffled and slow on the uptake.
  2. I have an embarrassment of Japanese planes.
    I would gladly send you one to "test drive".

    Don't spend any dosh, yet.
